Be ready for Ready Player One ! 

The term “metaverse” was coined and described for the first time in 1992 by Neal Stephenson, an American sci-fi writer, in his novel “Snow Crash.” Decades later, this concept has been translated into reality, so much so that it applies to different applications such as video games, musical events, or professional meetings. How is the state of […]

Çdo qen meriton një jetë të mire

“Njeriu nuk humb asgjë nëse sillet mirë me një kafshë.” – Aktori amerikan Joaquin Phoenix “Përgjatë gjithë kohërave, qentë kanë qenë miqtë më të mirë të njerëzve.

Жив музеј на коли

Сирење, ајвар, тавче-гравче, ракија, ќебап, шопска салата, прекрасна природа, сонце и неверојатен амбиент создаден од луѓе-ова се само некои од првите асоцијации кои ги имам во глава за Македонија.

Пред неколку децении, немаше толку многу продавници за накит. Немаше синџири, и секој кој го изработуваше овој накит нудеше посебен дизајн. Денес, многу продавници меѓусебно се надминуваат во понуди кои не се разликуваат едни од други. Ова е една од причините зошто се повеќе и повеќе луѓе го ценат она што е единствено и направено […]
